Our Focus

  • Specifically, the focus is to support communities, recycling groups and institutions, especially schools in implementing a waste recycling culture.
  • This support consists of coordinating the purchase of recycling bins and related equipment, education seminars on composting and recycling in schools, organizing annual conferences and holding regular operator workshops to review recycling issues and strategies.
